    Hi

    I own an iPhone 5; I was running iOS 6.1.2 with Jailbreak but I noticed a strange behavior when I use an app.

    Sometimes when I open the app "El Pais" (the app of the most read newspaper in Spain) or when I read an article on it, sudenly Safari was open and I was redirected to a porn site (www.por*t********.com). It happen just twice, in 2 different days, and I cant make it happen again when I try to repeat it.

    I decided to install an original iOS and I upgraded to iOS 7, but it still happens, and I'm often redirected to same site when I open the app. So I think it can be due 2 reasons:
    - my iPhone has a trojan or any other f***ng malware, which persists after iOS upgrade, or
    - app, xml data feeding app are corrupted or hacked

    any ideas?

    iphones dont get malware. Its the news site. If you just cant live without that news site, use another or put up with porn.

    I doubt that…..

    El Pais in not some backward news site or blog but one of the foremost newspapers in Spain, saying it is bringing you to a porn-site is the same as saying that clicking on USA-Today or CNN.com will take you to some porn-site.

    I have the same problem but in other site (www.netvasco.com.br). Even with different devices, even on a brand new iPad mini NON-jailbroke and with no apps installed lol

    It redirects me to a strlogger.com i guess.

    TriJetHero, I'm a reader of El País, so I understand how big it is and how unlikely sounds it, but really, I'm not so bored to come here and write b******t, I just try to get an explanation about what I've seen :eek: in my device.
